Join a MedSafer Study



Commitment: Short-term

Connection method: Virtual

Open to National Region, Provincial Region


MedSafer is a computer application that helps guide older adults (60 and above) and their healthcare practitioner through a medication review.

Available in both English and French, the app is powered by science to optimize patients’ medication regimes, based on their current health priorities.

Dr. Emily McDonald, Associate Professor of Medicine at McGill University and Scientific Director of the Canadian Deprescribing Network (CADeN), is seeking your feedback to help improve MedSafer. As a participant, you’ll have the opportunity to test the app and share your thoughts through surveys, contributing approximately 45-60 minutes of your time.

The study is funded by Health Canada and will be ethically approved by McGill University Health Centre. Formal recruitment will begin in February 2024. For more information, please visit the study description.

Graduate student Jimmy Lee is available for any questions at or 438-820-1792.
